CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) – OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Following the address by President Cyril Ramaphosa last night, our management committee has decided to put safety of players, parents, staff and coaches above all else.

With immediate effect, we will be suspending all junior practices, friendly games, private coaching, tournaments and any other events at our (Crusaders) venue. This suspension will run in line with government school closure until after Easter weekend. Coaches are urged to continue with registration where possible.

Please keep in mind all the advice regarding personal distancing, elbow shakes, handwashing, coughing/sneezing into your elbow or into a tissue.

Hopefully we will all be back on the playing fields as soon as possible. Should you have any queries, please contact me directly.

Yours in Sport
Steve Papini
Chairman

OUR JUNIOR COACHING PHILOSOPHY

The coaching staff and officials of Juventus FC understand that children participate in football to have fun. If children don’t have fun playing football, they’ll soon pack it in.

We never forget that the game of football is just that – a game. It’s not about how many wins and losses are accumulated. And, it is surely not about how many trophies are collected. It’s not about how many goals we score or concede. It’s all about enjoying the game and, at the same time, learning and developing football and life skills.

Proper football development requires that children play age appropriate activities so they are able to experience, comprehend, and execute the game as it relates to where they are at their own stage of physical and mental development.

It is about playing in different positions so the player learns all the skills necessary to develop in the game.

It’s about receiving equal playing time, so the players are all given equal opportunity to learn.

It’s about learning the techniques of the game through a variety of fun games where players have as much contact with a ball as possible and learn at their own rates.
